    Yeah, our record getting pure PGs isn't good. However, it's not like they are easy to recruit-- and I doubt it will get easier (despite the move to the A10). Simple fact is there just aren't many talented, ready-to-play floor generals coming out of high school that don't get swept up by the bigger programs.

    We've swung and missed at some quality PGs lately, so it's not like the staff is totally ignoring the situation. It only takes one...

    Allen was never really seen as a pure PG as a recruit. He was a guard who tried to become a PG after he committed, because we needed one.

    You do realize he's on this board... That said, he shot them high up most of the time because that's what he was told to do, since those new fans give you the most bang for your buck on giveaways.

    I held my breath every time I shot a shirt towards one of the sides. I was just hoping not to bring down a banner. Considering I shot over 900 shirts (8 shirts per game X 15 games per season X 8 seasons) over 8 seasons I'm surprised I didn't hit banners more often. Many games few fans were sitting in the corners so the sides with banners hanging were the only place to shoot. There wasn't a lot aiming involved since the shirts rarely shot straight. Most would either hook or slice. Mostly it was just pointing the gun towards a general area.

    I always wondered if can you dial in a specific pressure setting on that thing? It actually seemed like it was a little too powerful for the Pat center.

    Also, about your dismissal this year, maybe the admin had a premonition. . . .patriots are ranked #298 in 3PTM and #288 in 3PTA. You would have been pretty bored :).

    Maybe the guys figured, "What the hell, if there isn't a t-shirt gun, I'm not making any threes.". They too, are embarrassed with the lack of throwing ability by the male cheerleaders.

    The 6 year old girl who sits in front of me isn't. She's up to about 3 shirts on the year.

    I'm sitting here watching the UNC vs Texas game, and the announcers talk about this being Rick Barnes 16th year at Texas. WOW! Time does fly. It seems like only yesterday that he was recruiting the team that the coach that shall not be named took to our first NCAA. And to keep it in perspective, he also coached an additional 10 years at Providence and Clemson between his Mason and Texas jobs ... I feel old.

    Speaking of coming unglued...

    Watching the 1983 ACC Final on ESPN classic.....watched the OCM get UVA a technical foul, for coming unglued over a non call in that game.....

    In Cornell’s last men’s basketball game, at Stony Brook, Coach Bill Courtney often threw his arms up in frustration after a turnover and frequently flashed an exhausted smile when his team committed an imprudent foul.

    By the time Jameel Warney of Stony Brook made a layup and free throw with 12 minutes 32 seconds remaining, giving the Seawolves a 55-36 lead, the front of Courtney’s dress shirt was fully untucked, completing the image of a coach watching his winless team.

    Cornell lost Sunday, 76-54, dropping to 0-11 this season. Of the 351 Division I men’s basketball programs in the country, Cornell is the last team without a victory. And as Cornell searches for that first win, its coach is trying to forge a team identity.
